I get an error when trying to log in to the Google Webmaster Tools Module, even though I'm sure my credentials are correct.

You may have to change your Google Account settings to be able to log in to the GWT Module. Do either of the following:


  1. Go to https://www.google.com/settings/security -> "Access for less secure apps" -> set to Enabled -> Log in to SM Data Grabber with your regular Google Account credentials
  2. Go to https://www.google.com/settings/security -> complete the "2-Step Verification" setup -> create an app-specific password at https://security.google.com/settings/security/apppasswords -> Log in to SM Data Grabber with your Google Account email and the app-specific password


We recommend the latter method, as it's more secure and recommended by Google.
